Overseeding during monsoon

Asked July 29, 2018, 2:21 PM EDT

Am I crazy to think about overseeding my yard to take advantage of the afternoon monsoon rains we've been getting, or should I be patient and wait until fall?

I would never call you crazy, but gardening in Colorado can be a bit insane! The forecasts indicate we will be getting warmer and drier later this week, but if you are consistent with watering you might be successful seeding now. Here is a link to CSU information about renovating the lawn. It suggests August-September, based on average rainfall and temperatures. And remember to water even over the winter, during the warm dry spells that always happen.
